The Serenity Prayer

Something that just occured to me after reading some heated discussion about personal responsibility is the Serenity Prayer. A lot of people know the short version but I would like to share the long version here.

"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things i can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time, enjoying each moment, accepting hardship as the pathway to peace. Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will, that I may be reasonably happy in life, and supremely happy with Him in the next. Amen"

I need to remind myself to read this more often.

I didn't know there was more to the prayer it's great to see the rest of it.

I am thinking of you as you embark upon reunion, it's a very powerful experience isn't it.
